The Optional Five-Term Year-Round Educational Plan. A Step Toward Implementing Plans for Extending the Regular School Year. 45 + 45 + 45 + 45 = 180 (+ 45 = Fifth Term.) Phase II: The Communications Phase.
Utica Community Schools, MI.
The Utica Community School District was one of several school districts in Michigan to receive a second grant from the State Legislature to continue research and communications on the year-round school concept during the 1970-71 fiscal year. This communications phase was designed to gather, investigate, analyze, and disseminate information concerning the possibilities of conducting a pilot, year-round school operation. The objectives of Phase II were to (1) develop an optional 3-year, 5-term, year-round educational plan; (2) communicate this educational plan to local residents; (3) develop a tooling-up plan to move toward the optional 5-term, year-round educational concept including the cost analysis for Phases II and IV (1971-1976); and (4) the identification of a possible level and a location for a pilot, year-round program.
